The problem

From testing-library/dom-testing-library#107:
... it is becoming apparent the need to express user actions on a web page using a higher-level abstraction than fireEventfire-event

The solution

user-event tries to simulate the real events that would happen in the browser as the user interacts with it. For example userEvent.click(checkbox) would change the state of the checkbox.
The more your tests resemble the way your software is used, the more confidence they can give you.guiding-principle
